Mini Review - A Simple Favour

A Simple Favour (out Sep 13) is from director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and is the story of a blogger (Anna Kendrick) who investigates the disappearance of her new best friend (Blake Lively). There are some great characters here (even the small ones such as the insurance assessor) but in trying to continually outsmart the audience, the story doesn't always add up. Grade: B-.
